Sometimes it seems that there is no way out of the situation, and that the life has ended. Nevertheless, sometimes miracles happen and become truly life-changing.

That is exactly what happened with Martin Pistorius from South Africa. When Martin was a little boy, he suffered from the Neurodegenerative disease. As a result, he lost control of his body for more than a decade.

Martin’s condition was getting only worse until it was like he was no longer in his body.

Pistorius was not able to speak, make facial expressions, and couldn’t even control his body. It was a horrible period not only for Martin, but also for his parents, who were devastated to see their son suffer.

Martin was assumed to be brain dead and totally unaware of the world going on around him. At one point, his frustrated mother said she wished he would just die.

But one day changed his life forever. It happened when the physical therapist found a glimmer in his eye that told her this boy was in there somewhere. A set of tests were performed and they revealed that, even though Martin was unable to speak, he actually understood what was going on around him.

After a while, Martin managed to talk by means of a computer-aided device, and he even learned to drive and went to college.

Now, Martin lives a normal life and has become a famous public speaker. He is happily married to his beautiful wife, Joanna who he met in 2008.

He is also a proud parent.

To be told that children would not be possible makes the astounding discovery that we are expecting a baby exceptionally special! We are so thankful for this unexpected blessing.
